With so many requirements to meet, and standards to uphold, it can be a difficult decision to know what flooring solution is right for your needs. On top of this, there are so many areas within one facility that require additional durability, a higher level of non-slip or greater chemical resistance.
What you need to keep in mind when selecting a flooring solution:
- Time available to install the floor
- What acids/chemicals will the floor need to be resistant to
- How hygiene-friendly or cleanable you need the floor to be
- How durable the floor needs to be, considering the foot and forklift traffic, as well as if any heavy objects are likely to fall on the floor
Let’s walk through each of the flooring solutions, where they’re best suited and other factors to consider when choosing each flooring solution.
Please note that due to the range of challenges presented in the food and beverage manufacturing industry, all of our flooring solutions are entirely customizable to your needs.
SteriFloor Beschützen is a polyurethane cement flooring solution with particularly good chemical and acid resistance. This means this solution is suitable for wet or dry production rooms, as well as coolrooms and freezers.
Beschützen is a fast-curing system, typically faster than SteriFloor Stärke, but not as fast as SteriFloor Schnell.
While it is faster than Stärke, the system has been developed with durability capable of light to medium traffic, rather than medium to heavy traffic, like Stärke.
SteriFloor Stärke is a polyurethane cement flooring solution with excellent durability, impact resistance, as well as superior chemical and acid resistance. This solution is ideal for a broad range of areas within food and beverage manufacturing facilities. Excellent for main production areas, coolrooms, and freezers.
We recommend Stärke in areas that have medium to heavy foot and forklift traffic.
Like all our polyurethane cement systems, SteriFloor Stärke is available in a wide range of non-slip finishes to cater to your needs.
SteriFloor Sauber is an epoxy resin flooring solution, with particularly good substrate adhesion. This makes it ideal for commercial bakeries, fat rooms, and other oily areas. It has excellent durability, abrasion and chemical resistance.
With the main installation being in commercial bakeries or rooms with high oil/fat levels, it is commonly installed with a medium slip resistant profile to maximise worker health and safety.
SteriFloor Keimfrei is an epoxy resin flooring solution, ideal for areas with maximum hygiene requirements such as clean rooms, laboratories, and high care areas.
It is often used in pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities, as well as ‘Ready-to-eat’ areas, where the highest hygiene standards must be upheld. This system has been specifically designed to be easy to clean.
SteriFloor Schnell is a polyurethane cement flooring solution with a particularly good curing time. It is the fastest curing polyurethane cement flooring solution available for food and beverage manufacturing facilities.
It has excellent chemical resistance, and has good impact and abrasion resistance.
This solution is ideal for packing halls or warehouse areas, where there is light to medium foot and forklift traffic.
SteriFloor Schützend is a polyurethane cement flooring solution that has excellent durability, as well as good cleaning properties, making it an ideal solution for food and beverage manufacturing floors with medium foot & forklift traffic.
Similarly to Schnell, this solution is ideal for packing halls, or warehouse areas, however with added durability, Schützend can stand up to higher amounts of foot and forklift traffic.
